ABOUT

I love arranging playing acoustic covers of popular songs (with tight, thick harmonies if possible given the configuration of the group I'm working with), and I have extensive experience performing Celtic and Bluegrass fiddle tunes. I play accordion, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, cello, Celtic harp, and I can pluck (not bow, though) an upright bass. I have a degree in Classical Piano Performance from Belmont University, also, so I can play piano and keyboard. I have been playing piano and taking lessons since I was a toddler and have been playing/taking lessons in the other instruments since I was fourteen (although accordion and cello are more recent additions). I have been singing lead vocals for several years now, but I also love doing harmonies.

EQUIPMENT

I just moved to the Boston area this Fall, so the only instruments I have been able to bring here with me (so far) are my keyboard, accordion, fiddle, and mandolin. I have pickups for the latter two and one cardio mic.
